BUENOS AIRES — A court in Argentina has sentenced the owner of a PIT BULL that killed a two-year-old boy to eight years in prison.
The court sentenced Horacio Gonzalez on Monday (April 25) in the 2014 death of the child. GONZALEZ IS A PIT BULL BREEDER.
The investigation found that neighbours had warned Gonzalez that his dogs were violent. But he still tied one of them to an abandoned car near where local children played before it fatally mauled the boy.
Gonzalez can appeal the sentence. He said he regrets the attack and has euthanised the dog.
The mother of the child said after the sentence that her son can finally “rest in peace”. AP
